Background

Summary

Sheldon Kimber has over 15 years of experience in energy finance and development. In his most recent role as COO of Recurrent Energy he led all of the company’s development, origination, engineering, procurement, construction and operations activities globally.

In his prior role as Senior Vice President, Development, Sheldon drove the expansion of Recurrent Energy's development strategy from a small scale rooftop developer with less than 100MW pipeline to a leading utility scale PV developer with hundreds of MWs of contracted projects and a pipeline of 2.GW+. Throughout his tenure at Recurrent Energy, Sheldon was intricately involved in all major North American project development, PPA origination, M&A and module procurement, including the company’s SCE, Sunset Reservoir, Ontario, SMUD and Kaiser Permanente projects among others. Sheldon joined Recurrent Energy in the Spring of 2007, shortly after its founding. In his first 18 months at Recurrent Energy, he held the role of vice president of finance, where he was instrumental in developing and negotiating the company’s first projects, early fund raising efforts, and joint venture agreements.

Previously, he spent five years at Calpine, working on gas-fired power projects and power purchase agreements with large energy customers. He also worked as an investment banker for industrial and natural resource companies at Goldman Sachs, and in Accenture’s strategy consulting practice, specializing in power price forecasting and asset valuation projects for utility clients. Sheldon holds a BA in Economics from Kenyon College and an MBA from UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, where he teaches Project Finance in the Full-time MBA program.

Specialties: Project finance and development in energy and electric power sectors. Entrepreneurship in energy and infrastructure sectors. Executive Leadership in energy and infrastructure development companies.
